The new series of The View Presents has an exciting mix of programmes in which John Kelly interviews five very different artists including folk legend Andy Irvine; a live session with award-winning band Villagers; Druid's Tony winning Director Garry Hynes; LA Confidential Author, James Ellroy. Tonight's first programme features Pat Shortt. From his cult success show with Jon Kenny, in the 1980s, D'Unbelievables, to television roles in Father Ted, Maurice Hickey, Crystal Ball and the long running Killinaskully, Shortt has become one of Ireland's most loved comedians. But there is more to his acting than comedy, as his sensational performance in the award-winning film Garage proved. Pat opens up on the funny moments and the terror that the turn to serious acting instilled in him.
